The NASA Earth Observatory has published a new image of Soufrière Hills volcano on Montserrat, captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite on New Year’s Day. The image shows the volcano’s plume blowing away to the west, then turning back on itself to blow to the north-east. Click here for the full-size image and accompanying commentary.
